English Speaking Group in Stockholm
« skrivet: 12 maj 2018 kl. 17:27:49 »
Hello!

I recently moved to Stockholm and I was wondering if there are any regular playing wargame groups in the city.

I'd especially be interested in a group that is willing to play multiplayer games, COIN, Here I Stand, Churchill, and the like.

Hello!

While I'm Swedish I would not mind starting/joining an English speaking group. Coincidentally I own Fire in the Lake and Colonial Twilight from the COIN series along with Here I Stand and Churchill (among a lot of other games). Have not been able to get HIS to the table yet, six dedicated players are hard to round up :/

Anyway, if you're up for it we could probably get something going at Dice Café (https://www.facebook.com/DiceCafeSTHLM/).

Take care!

/Ludvig

Hello, Ludvig!

Yes, that would be great! Hopefully we can get a few more interested souls to join in this endeavor.

Finding a place afterwards should be easy, the people seem to be the hard part.

Hi Andrew,

Agree it is the people that is difficult to find than the place. I still cannot speak Swedish well after many years living here but I survived to find some people willing to play in English too:)

Occasionally we do play Virgin Queen, Churchill, Time of Crisis etc. But I would also like to play some 1v1 hex and counter games too.

Maybe we can meet up sometime.

B.R.
Lei

That sounds great, Lei! You can send me a private message and we can set up a meeting and maybe we can have Ludvig join too. How many people are usually in your group?

I don't mind having some two player games going on too, but I'd really like to get some multiplayer games in.

Here's my collection, some of it I have left over in Linköping, but most of the wargames are here with me.

Let's pick a game and maybe we can schedule a gameday then.

Looks like all of us appreciate Churchill, how about a couple of conferences of that to get started? I can't join on 23-24/5, but other evenings/nights I might be able to negotiate for :)

Sounds like a plan. We can meet at the Dice Cafe. I have a couple of exams coming up and it would be a lot easier for me to join after that(Plus one of the exams is in International Politics, studying for it might make me more likely to win the game :)).

Here's a poll that might help us pick a date.

Hello! Unfortunately I will most likely be unable to attend, both the wife and three year old are ill. Eyebrows were raised when I brought up the subject of spending the evening gaming.

I hope you can find another player and that we will be able to schedule another session soon-ish.

Best regards

/Ludvig

Absolutely no problem! We can just reschedule for some other time. Lei let us know if that's ok with you too.

Send us a message when the family is feeling better and we'll just reschedule then.
